Honey from Tasmanian’s pristine wilderness
The rare Leatherwood honey is sourced from the pristine Tarkine wilderness here in the north west of Tasmania, in an area known for the world’s cleanest air and water.
Blue Hills Honey is located in the small Tasmanian district of Mawbanna, 8 km from Dips Falls and 40 minutes from Burnie Airport.
Blue Hills Honey has been exporting bulk honey to Japan for more than 50 years. In 2004 they started exporting under their own brand with varieties ranging from Leatherwood, Manuka, Tarkine Wilderness, Blackberry and Meadow Honey.
Recently, Blue Hills Honey has been successful in receiving Federal Government funding for expansion.
The million-dollar project will, over the next two years, increase its production capacity and tourism experience, building a cafe and interpretation centre which will include virtual reality.
